'This paper presents a theoretical analysis and correlation with numerical results of the displacement time histories of laminated composite panels exposed to normal blast shock waves. Nonlinear dynamic equations of the cylindrically curved laminated panels are derived by the use of the Lagrange equations in the frame of Love's theory of thin shells. The governing equations of the laminated curved panel are solved by Runge-Kutta method. In addition, ANSYS finite element software is used to obtain displacement time history numerically. The effect ofloading conditions and geometrical properties is examined on the dynamic behavior.
